Naughty Dog Teases Multiplayer For The Last Of Us, With New Trailer And Box Art

Along with the first info on European pre-order details.

Our reveal of the teaser for The Last Of US got you talking, but the full thing has been officially released this morning by SCEE after last week’s VGAs, which highlighted the release date – 7th May.

Thankfully, after days of YouTube videos being deleted, Sony have themselves issued the proper trailer, which is below for your entertainment – especially if you’ve not seen it yet.


It's the same key art, but it looks lovely on a box.
Naughty Dog have also taken the time to show off the new box art – right – and mention some of the pre-order bonuses, which are split into two, depending on the retailer:

Sights And Sounds Pack:

  • The official soundtrack of the game
  • A PS3 dynamic theme featuring the cover art shown here on the right
  • Two avatars for your PSN profile – Winter Joel and Winter Ellie

or:

The Survival Pack:

  • Or the Survival Pack, which includes:
  • Bonus experience points for multiplayer
  • A multiplayer melee attack booster
  • Some extra starting in-game cash
  • Special customizable character items for multiplayer
  • Two special bonus skins for Joel and Ellie which will be unlocked after your complete the single player campaign

And yeah, that’s the multiplayer, which has only previously been teased and mentioned off the cuff. Sounds like it’s competitive at least, which is good to hear.

The Last Of Us is expected to be the PS3’s last big first party game, and all of us are hoping it lives up that lofty expectation. We’ll see soon enough in May.

    I’ll have the Sights and Sounds pack. MP is probably going to be much like Uncharted.

    MP really though. They should have just left it alone. Unless its Co-Op but highly doubt it. Lets just hope the MP trophy is like UC just play online & co op.

      Yeah I’m with you there, it seems like the story has the potential to be the PS3’s pinnacle, so why waste resources on multiplayer? I guess its because they can save money by copying and pasting most of what they need from Uncharted’s multiplayer and still put out something people will want to play. I’m not a fan of zombie apocalypse games but I’m getting excited about this.

        Exactly cause this looks like story concentrated rather than MP, I don’t want them to make a good story only to get low ratings due to the MP but lets see what they do UC managed to pull a decent MP. I’m not a zombie fan either, played a bit of resi 5 that was a bore. But can’t wait for this

      With you on this one, guys. The Last of Us is just in front of Limbo for games I’d like to see with multiplayer (read: never!).

    Sights and Sounds Pack sounds better.

    I’ll take the soundtrack as a bonus ahead of pretty much anything, including DLC. Especially multiplayer DLC.

    Here’s hoping it’s got a really good score/soundtrack.

    not the biggest fan of competitive multiplayer, and not just because i suck, though that is a factor ^_^.
    so i think i’d go for the sights and sounds pack.
    the soundtrack would be the main draw, but the theme and avatars would be nice, though i’m still attached to the Quorra avatar pic i currently use.

    anyway, the game is looking pretty damn good, great to see more story bits rather then just combat.

      Mmhhh… Quorra… >_>
      This quote confuses me:

      “Sounds like it’s competitive at least, which is good to hear.”

      I fail to see how the inclusion of competitive MP in this game could be a good thing. If anything, they should give us a coop mode…

        well, competitive multiplayer can extend the life of a game, if you enjoy that sort of thing.

        but i agree, this seems ideally suited to a co-op mode.
        especially if they did a proper co-op mode where you actually have to cooperate at certain points rather than just doubling the amount of enemies you have to shoot.

    Tempted by the Sights and Sounds pack. People said that the multiplayer would detract from the single player when they announced it for Uncharted 2 and Naughty Dog went and created on of the best single player experiences of this generation. So I’ve got faith in them.

    If all the games are going to have multiplayer now? Why not do Multiplayer only and single player only games? I don’t like this… don’t see the point. There’s probably as little point in actually having a “campaign” in a Modern Warfare game… one of the reasons I never buy them, because they’re mainly multiplayer. I love Uncharted 2&3, but I could have easily done without the multiplayer. :S
